Roasted Green Bean Salad

The next few days will be spent recovering from the festival (I know it was only one night but we made the critical mistake of forgetting it gets extremely cold at 3am, and so didn’t really sleep at all while the children slept happily under all the warm layers!) So, plenty of sleep and eating the healthiest food possible. Lots of light salads and vitamin packed veggies should do the trick….

These roasted green beans are a delight – still a bit crunchy with an intensified flavour, and they make a great salad dish. So simple, but so delicious….

This recipe was inspired by one that appears in The Moosewood Cookbook

      1. I think beets are my favorite root vegetable, plus they contrast so nicely with anything green 😉
